Nashoba Brooks Welcomes Board of Visitors and Board of Trustees to Campus for Visiting Morning

This year’s Annual Meeting of the Nashoba Brooks School Board of Visitors and Board of Trustees Visiting Morning took place on Thursday, April 5, 2018.
It was a wonderful morning with this extraordinary group of friends, visionaries, and stewards of Nashoba Brooks School. We participated in a variety of activities beginning with a welcome from Board of Visitors Chair John McClellan followed by a State of the School presentation by Head of School Danielle Heard.  

Danielle introduced Executive Director of Marketing & Communications Colette Porter, who spoke about the School’s use of social media and the increases in traffic we have experienced in recent months. Colette encouraged everyone to “like” the Nashoba Brooks posts on social media and shared the attached “how to” sheet to facilitate participation.

Jennifer Craig spoke about Planned Giving and the “Gladys Brooks Society.” This is a new initiative for the School that provides our donors with yet more choices and opportunities for their support.

Following the presentations, attendees had an opportunity to engage with students. Speech Team Coach and Drama Assistant Hannah Flint ‘97, along with two Grade 7 students, explained how their inter-scholastic improvisation competitions work and demonstrated how they prepare and deliver their speeches. They were beyond impressive. Grade 2 students enthusiastically recited poetry, and six Grade 3 students proudly shared their “everyday heroes” projects.

The morning concluded with a design thinking exercise presented by Dewing Schmid Kearns Architects and Planners. After explaining how design thinking works, Tom Kearns invited guests to participate in an exercise with a focus on the following three prompts:
  1. How can Nashoba Brooks School continue to provide educational experiences that prepare students for the 21st century?
  2. What portfolio of built environments enable the desired learning outcomes for students?
  3. What is the secret sauce that will attract the best teaching and administrative employees to Nashoba Brooks School?
It was an inspiring morning and we look forward to welcoming our Board of Visitor members back to campus soon.
